I'm not sure I understand, or sometimes if I even want to be part of a world that takes away they ones who most deserve to live in it. When they say only the good die young, they really do mean it. Why is it the people who appreciate life and who choose to live it to the very fullest are the people who get the shortest attempt at doing so? The world has so much bad, why steal its good? Who decides? Because those people are wrong. I feel sick to my stomach when I have to sit back & watch wonderful people look death in the eyes through cancer, like my former boss is doing right now. Or when I hear about the loss of my cousin in an accident this past weekend. A beautiful man only a year younger than myself, who brightened a room just by walking into it. He had the fullest heart, biggest smile and jolliest laugh I've ever known. I can't even contemplate a world without those things... Its like an empty space.
What I do know is that though our world has gotten so much, much dimmer, it must have gotten a hell of a lot brighter in the next. Wherever that is, I hope they know how goddamned lucky they are... we knew.
Rest in Peace, "Cuzin" Joe. I miss you. I love you.
I want you back.
